I'm looking for an opinion on content related to the niche you're targeting. Let's say our niche or 'money site' is related to 'shoes'. How much of a factor would you say Google's spider plays on the content in relation? What I mean is: What if there was an article on teddy bears and aside from a anchor text backlink had nothing to do with my original niche 'shoes'. I understand keyword density, proximity and prominence are somewhat important factors where on-page optimization is concerned. But if you were to scale the importance of related content out of 10 (1 being not important and 10 being extremely important) then what number would you come up with? I'm not interested in credibility of the referring site - simply original/unique content that has nothing to do with the niche you're targeting compared to original/unique content that has a direct/indirect relationship.
